Volunteer Review Lauren Wolford in Belize Orphanage program Dayton University

The Belize break out is unique as we provide “service” by simply begin here, spending time with the children, learning a new culture, and understanding that this way of life is just a full, valid and joyful as my own.

Review Volunteer Mirofora Paridis in Guatemala Xela at the medical program Bridgeport University

I first came with ABV to Xela in 2014 for two weeks to volunteer in the Centro de Salud and instantly fell in love. Two years later when I started PA school I came back with 10 of my classmates and faculty. This year we came back with 22 people! Everyone who comes to Xela wants to come back. I have so much love for this city and hope to come back again one day.

Volunteer Review Lauren Cody Belize orphanage Dayton University

I find the work being done here not only admirable, but extraordinary. I was constantly impressed by all the hard work put in each day by the caregivers. To give a child a house to live is one thing and to give a child a loving home is another. The orphanage goes above and beyond to make this a happy place for this to call home.

Review Volunteer Maria Majet Reyes Woman’s Support Kathmandu Nepal

The program was one of a kind. Not only was it educational, it was also fun and to give back to the community.
Suggest a trip to Pokhara (outside of Kathmandu) and see the Buddhas and the lake
For lunch or food/meal suggest a Nepali restaurant with Nepalese food. It’s so yummy.

Volunteer Review Grace McCormic Belize Orphanage Dayton University

I just wanted to thank everyone for this incredible experience. I will never forget the love that I was shown this week it was unforgettable. This volunteer trip has confirmed my passion for working with kids and helping others. This was not a one week program for me, I am going to forever hold the kids in my heart and hopefully come back in the near future and if not help from afar.

Review Volunteer  Robin Fiftal in Guatemala Xela at the medical program Bridgeport University

Keep an open mind. Understand that everything you do means something. Never underestimate your ability to have an impact and to make a real difference in someones life. Even if you feel like you didn´t do anything, or that it just wasn´t enough – it was. It is appreciated, someone is grateful. That is what it is all about.

Review Volunteer Linh Tran Honduras La Ceiba Premedical program

I've done a similar trip in Guatemala with another program but it cannot compare to going through ABV. The coordinator is with you every step of the way and cares that you are getting the most out of the program. As a result, I learned and saw so much that I wouldn't have been able to see as a volunteer in the U.S. I got to take vital signs, help out in wound care, and I learned to start IV leads and administer medications and vaccines. I got to witness live births and hear about the surgeries that other ABV volunteers witnessed. It was also cool to meet other volunteers also from ABV and hear about their experiences. What I loved most was learning from the doctors and nurses who enjoyed teaching us despite how busy they were and who had the patience to explain to us the whys and the hows. In the U.S., it's harder to find doctors who are willing to take that time of their days. Overall, this was an amazing 2 weeks and I'm excited to share it with my family and friends back home. I definitely recommend this to anyone in the health care field who would like to get a taste of what health care is like in a different country. You will learn a lot and get a decent amount of hands-on experience!
